These whiting photos shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a whiting fish looks like. Whiting are caught in salt water or brine water. Most whiting are not very large in size, but are a favorite eating fish among many fishing anglers. These are often found sold in stores or restaurants, and have a very soft and flaky texture when cooking. Whiting are popular catching whether in the ocean or creeks feeding the ocean.

How to identify a whiting? Some characteristics of the whiting include small scales, rounded square like tail, and grey and white in color. These fish die quickly when out of water. (Always remember when releasing fish to get them back into the water as soon as possible and not over handle them, so the fish do not die after being released. Just because the fish swims away does not mean it actually survived. Maybe in the future when you are fishing it will bite your line again when its much larger!).
